What’s more impressive is that he only threw four interceptions throughout the regular season.
He also completed 68.9 percent of his passes and also added three rushing touchdowns.
The Packers’ winning chances increase with him at the helm.
That’s why it’s no surprise that Rodgers won 13 of the 16 games he started in 2021.
But while those numbers are impressive, NFL insider Dov Kleiman pointed out Rodgers’ problematic side through stats.

The graphic he shared shows that Rodgers didn’t perform well under pressure last year.
His 9.0 QBR ranked 26th while his 38 percent completion percentage when under duress put him at 29th.
He was also last in yards per attempt at 3.7 yards.
Those numbers are not comforting, especially when he faces better defensive units during the postseason.
These figures also explain his disappointing performance against the San Francisco 49ers at home during the Divisional Round.
After getting a Wild Card bye, the Packers were optimistic against a 49ers team that is not accustomed to cold-weather games.
But as the game went on, the Niners showed that they wanted the game more.
Rodgers’ struggles and the Packers’ special teams woes caused their demise.
No Primary Receiver
Davante Adams‘ departure might even cause a bigger blow to their campaign.
Without him, Rodgers doesn’t have a home-run option that could leave defenders behind.
Rodgers must be able to shake off the pressure to play better and lead the Packers to the Super Bowl.
It could be the problem that is hindering him from winning another title.
